2012 Wavecrest Woody Car Show Features Highway 101 Ocean Cruise
Caravan from Encinitas to Oceanside Beach and Pier
I love classic car shows and just about any car show that
is on or by the beach and of all the shows the Wavecrest
Woodie Car is by far the best. The show is actually 4 days
but the two I bookmark are the main woody show at
Moonlight Beach in Encinitas and then the last day where
about 70-80 woodies gather in Encinitas and cruise the
Highway 101 along the California coast on their way to
the Oceanside Pier.
As a woodie classic car enthusiast it is the pinnacle of
woodie car shows that you will get since the large
number of cars, colors, models and amazing Oceanside beach and
pier background with surfers and beach goers in the midst of all
The crazy part is that you only get 15 minutes to get the shots
before the car participants start leaving and going home and
there are a ton of cars and pedestrians getting into the way
that you have to shoot around.
I love woodies and I love classic car shows and the part of getting
all the cars to cruise the 101 Highway is the BEST way to end a
car show that I could ever think of and is a good though
for any car event people looking to do something special
with a “twist.
For me as a photographer this is 15 minutes of heaven and hell
as I deal with trying to blow out as many shots and video as I can
while cropping out the passerbys and cars driving alongside the
parked cars along the beach. It is 10 – 15 minutes of the best woodie
shos I have ever gotten and I feel like this year I am pushing into
new ground and pushing more imagery into the frame and not being
so standard and predictable.
This was awesome – enjoy the woody photos from the 2012 Wavecrest
Car Show as it finished up in Oceanside at the end of the car cruise.
Here are the 2012 Wavecrest Woodie Car Show photos from Oceanside
